In one of her most recent posts on Instagram, Lucy shared a picture alongside her former work colleagues as they enjoyed a night out.

Standing beside actress Charlie Brooks and actors Gary Beadle and Nabil Elouahabi, Lucy showcased her edgy hairstyle which was styled in a pixie cut.

Wearing striking red lipstick, Lucy looked captivating as her cropped hair accentuated her big green eyes and cheek bones.

Captioning the photos – in which the actors could be seen enjoying themselves – Lucy shared that it was a "glorious" surprise to meet up with her old pals.

She wrote: "Another glorious surprise reunion at the matinee of @HowtoHaveaBaby1 my heart is full of [heart emoji] and laughs. And so many mates old and new. Thank you!"

Chiming in on the fun, fans shared their thoughts on the reunion in the comment section.

One social media user wrote: "No way! Love this and these faces! The gang is back together."

Another penned: "Wonderful picture, full of love and friendship."

Meanwhile a third joked: "Still not forgiven you or Paul for doing Barry bad. Legendary photo just missing him."

During her time on the BBC soap, Lucy was embroiled in a number of hard-hitting storylines.

Married to Barry Evans (Shaun Williamson), Lucy's character Natalie had a happy marriage.

But things gradually became sour when the businesswoman grew tired of his immaturity and soon began to rekindle her romance with her ex boyfriend, Ricky Butcher.

Natalie decided to leave Albert Square with Ricky and her son Jack but her plans were ruined when Barry discovered her plan to exit.

EastEnders actress Charlie, who plays Janine Butcher, also made things terrible for Natalie when she revealed that Ricky had a one-night stand with Sam Mitchell days before they planned to leave.

Since leaving EastEnders in 2004, Lucy has continued to appear in popular British dramas such as Casualty, Liar and Doctors.

She also became a mum for the first time in 2012 and welcomed her second child in August 2018.
